42. The Master said, “An ancient sage said, ‘There are three types of helpful friends: those who are upright; those who are generous; and those who are knowledgeable.’ Our comrades who are deeply connected with each other through their affinities and moral energies over the three time-periods are comrades and dharma companions who will be supportive of each other through numerous lifetimes. We must therefore become sincere comrades with one body and one mind, by enlightening each other uprightly and correctly and guiding each other benevolently and thoughtfully.”
